We have bikes on site and great off road cycling all around.Our cottages are situated in the heart of chateau country in the Loire Valley. We are well placed for visiting these wonderful historic castles; favourites include Chenonceau (just a 2 mile drive or cycle ride), Amboise, Blois, Chambord, Chaumont and Cheverny, and west of Tours, Villandry, Ussé, Azay-le-Rideau.. Wine tasting is available in all the local wine regions, a visit to Vouvray, Montlouis, Chinon, Saumur and now the motorway access is so much more accessible Sancerre, Pouilly is a 2 hour drive (but a nice and smooth ride).

The cottage is independent, although John and I come to the Loire Valley for around 3 months in the year, we have a local lady who manages the property for us, and you will access the cottage by key kept in a locked safe by the front door. You will receive lots of lnformation before you come to enable you to enjoy your stay with us.
